I was literally just thinking about trying this at work since our current setup sucks

And now it's time to say goodbye...

And just like that... things started to wind down. The displays closed. The work crews arrived to get ready for the next conference. Farewells were bid to friends whom we wouldn't see for another year, perhaps. Pictures were taken.

I've said many times that Google I/O isn't about the technology. It isn't about the sessions, or presentations, or displays.

It is about the people.

The Google engineers who we meet who help make the tools we use. The DevRel people who are there to help us learn The GDEs and GDGs who become our daily contact. The project managers and executives who drive the company, as a whole, forward with their visions. The guy you sit down to have lunch with.

+Gerwin Sturm and +Anna Kastlunger have become wonderful friends over the nearly five years we've known each other. I finally met Gerwin for the first time at I/O 2012, and still can't pronounce his name correctly. I met Anna a year later at I/O 2013. I follow the progress of their garden through the year. Perhaps this will be the year I get to Europe, and I hope to visit them while there. But till then... it is farewell for now.

This ends my semi-live notes from #io15. I'll have a few more posts over the next few days and weeks as I write longer notes about things, or watch the video from some of the sessions I couldn't make. I want to thank all of you who followed from home or from an I/O Extended event, commented, challenged, and asked questions. I hope you got a flavor of what the I/O experience was like. My thanks, especially, to +Linda Lawton, who couldn't make it to I/O this year but covered it from home for the +Google Developer Experts page.

Hope to see you at I/O 2016.

As many of my followers know, I joined Google back in January. This is a post on my thoughts about making the leap to joining Google and how I got here.

Hopefully it is insightful to developers thinking about their careers.

I saw this yesterday - it reminded me of bees with machineguns for AWS/EC2.

That said, all of the tools I've used for perf testing are missing good data management.  My biggest problem is the management of test input data, test configuration, result data, metrics from the app/environment and recording the state of the environment (size, app versions, etc) so that I can make useful comparisons in future tests.

Today at the Open Network Summit we showed how we've been running our datacenter networks for the past decade.  (For full details you'll have to wait for a paper we'll publish at SIGCOMM 2015 in August.)  

Great networking has long been a key ingredient in having a great cloud platform, and of course you get to use these same networks on +Google Cloud Platform.

Thanks +Sharif Salah for the great write up, photos and conversation at I/O!

We didn't record the alcove talks (like this one). Would anyone be interested in a video re-enactment?
 
Now that Google #IO2015 is over I've had a chance to sort through several hundred photos I took over 2 days of an unforgettable event. I'm going to be sharing my personal highlights in a series of mini photo essays and I'm starting with +Google Cloud Platform.

This year the highlight was unquestionably a super popular talk by +Brian Dorsey on using 'Containers to back your mobile app'. I was thrilled to be able to see Brian speak in person to packed alcoves on both days of the conference. It was great to see so many developers excited and engaged about using containers in their own apps and the questions came in thick and fast at the end of the talk.

Didn't get a chance to make it? No problem, there's a growing mountain of excellent resources building around the main system that Brian covered in the talk called +Kubernetes at http://kubernetes.io/ including plenty of information about how to get started and involved in one of the most exciting open source communities right now!

Until when is Google Container going to be in Alpha?
I've tried setting up a cluster in the Google Cloud Web UI (cloud.google.com), it doesn't allow you to change the number of VMs in the cluster once it's setup and there's no way to deploy anything via the Google Cloud Web UI (manually SSHing into each of the cluster nodes and running your docker images only runs it on that specific VM).
I take it the only way to currently change the cluster configuration and deploy apps is via the gcloud command-line app?
Also, is there anything special that needs to be done to run private docker containers for which you need to enter a username, password and email?

Love words.
 
Though I'm quite sure that it's been tweeted, plussed, liked, hearted, digged (dug?),  pinned,  followed, flickrd, tumbled, tagged, or even remarked to a fare-thee-well here and elsewhere; nevertheless, this paean to the flexibility, the unencumbered creativity, and the sheer unapologetic joy of language deserves to be noted yet again.

"If the only options are to be amazing or terrible, it leads people to believe they must be passionate about their career, that they must think about programming every waking moment of their life. If they take their eye off the ball even for a minute, they will slide right from amazing to terrible again. That leads people to be working crazy hours at work, to be constantly studying programming topics on their own time, and so on."
Why the myth of the "10X" programmer is so destructive.

Introduction
I'm a Developer Advocate on the Google Cloud Developer Relations team. This means I help you build cool stuff with our APIs. I focus on the open source Kubernetes cluster manager and our Cloud Platform, especially Compute Engine and Cloud Storage. I write sample code and create demos, present at conferences, and create screencasts. Feel free to drop me a note if you have any questions about our APIs.

I've taught Python at the University of Washington & spoken at both PyCon US & PyCon Japan. I'm a bit of a Python fan. I'm currently learning Go and enjoying it.

I love it when people use technology to improve in-person communication. I've done some experiments via coworking, ad hoc lunch gatherings, and mini hackathons. It's great to see all the experimentation in this area. We live in amazing times!
